Yes, it’s true: We are in love–with the color orange! A huge influence on the fashion palette of the season, orange is trendy in all its manifestations: coral, saffron, creamsicle, and burnt sienna. Orange is the perfect color to wear to a job interview (confident without being overly aggressive like red) and wearing orange has been scientifically proven to act like a jolt of caffeine to the system when you look at it.

Look: Quirky & Cute
This is our favorite look of the bunch because, well, we are quirky and cute types of ladies. Tuck the Mickey Mouse shirt into the skirt, throw on a black cardigan if you are cold, paint your nails bright canary yellow, and put on these tribal patterned wedges.
You’ll look totally unique, artsy, and put together without looking pretentious.
